1. Adjective Checklist Testing Similarity-Attraction. This exerciseis designed to test the hypothesis that similarity and attraction are related. It provides very reliable data.  Go through the adjective checklist below three times.  -First, check all those adjectives that apply to you.  -Second, you should think of a close friend and check all the adjectives that apply.  -Finally, you should check the adjectives that apply to a person you know, but with whom you could never be friends.  Adjective checklist: Self                                         Friend                                    Known, NonFriend  active                                               active                                   active  aggressive                                      aggressive                          aggressive  ambitious                                        ambitious                            ambitious  belligerent                                      belligerent                          belligerent  brave                                               brave                                   brave  dependent                                      dependent                          dependent dominant                                        dominant                            dominant  gentle                                              gentle                                  gentle  helpful                                            helpful                                helpful  independent                                  independent                      independent  obliging                                           obliging                               obliging  passive                                           passive                               passive  peaceful                                         peaceful                             peaceful  protective                                        protective                            protective  seeks protection                            seeks protection                seeks protection  self-centered                                  self-centered                      self-centered  self-confident                                self-confident                    self-confident  sociable                                          sociable                              sociable  tactless                                            tactless                                tactless  timid                                                 timid                                     timid  After you have completed the checklist, count the number of traits in common (either both checked or both unchecked) between yourself and a friend. Likewise, count the number of traits in common between yourself and a nonfriend. Likely you will find that you have more in common with friends than with nonfriends. Discuss this question: Do birds of a feather flock together? Or do opposites attract?  2. The Role of Chance in Marriage.The fact that chance may play a role in which one marries may be unsettling to any or all of us. Are you more apt to think that someone is predestined to be their “one and only” or that individuals carefully sort through candidate partners to find the one that suits them best? In fact, as Albert Bandura(1982) pointed out, pure chance will in great part determine whom one marries.Consider all of the individuals that you know who have married.   How did they come to meet each other and know each other well enough to end up married. Discuss those situations that you attribute to chance.   Do you see a difference between chance and destiny?   Describe.Sources: Bandura, A. (1982).
